$1.4 trillion. that includes the wars in iraq examine afghanistan and money for veterans and other military expenditures. it does not include security within the usa. under president obama, the war on terror has cost about $569 billion. approximately 10% of the debt the president has run up in his 3 1/2 years on the job. when people like alan colmes who will join us in a moment say america's debt is largely war driven, the stats don't back that up. mr. obama added $4.4 trillion to the debt during his time in office examine again the war on terror expenditures comprise 10% of that. the important question is has the war on terror been worth the price in blood and treasure? let's run it down. in the combined wars in iraq and afghanistan, nearly 6600 americans have been killed. almost 50,000 wounded. while all life is sacred, those figures are nothing like the vietnam war. however, i believe most historians will look back on the iraq war as being a mistake. we could have brought saddam to his knees by blockading his country. we didn't have to invade it. the weapons of mass destruction
. it's amazing. a new congressional candidate was wounded in iraq. she's running in illinois. here to fill air time, monica crowley and alan colmes. celebrating the release of his new book "thank the liberals for saving america." if you can't sell copies down there, you are toast, man. >> go to the eskimos, i know. >> bill: they should be screaming for you. i got to ask you you sat question i asked charles krauthammer. ted kennedy, you may not have seen this, but they did a tribute to him. >> i did. >> bill: did you see it? >> it's a tribute to kennedy and part of his career was going against mitt romney for senate. part of that debate, i thought it was relevant. it's not as exciting as an empty chair. >> bill: no, but was it in bad taste to use a dead guy to club mitt romney in. >> the purpose was to pay tribute to kennedy. >> bill: no, no north texas! it's to club -- wait! wait! it was to club romney! that's why they used that whole thing! they could have used that to have kennedy's measurements and achievements and all that. they cut out for about two 1/2 minutes for a dead guy
back strong. he not only demonstrated the courage to oppose the war in iraq, as president, he showed the determination to bring our troops back home. barak obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in "profiles in courage." he doesn't just do what's easy. he does what's hard. he does what's right. [ cheers and applause ] my father couldn't run for a second term. it was left to his brothers, our family, and the generation they inspired to fight for the america he believed in. now it's up to a new generation, our children's generation to carry america forward. so let me say to the young and the young at heart, barak obama is only president because you worked for him, because you believed in him, because you convinced your parents to vote for him. [ cheers and applause ] young people have always led america toward the brighter future. it happened in 1960. it happened in 2008. and if you show the same spirit in this election as you did in the last, i know that we'll make history again on november 6. thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> all right. that was caroline kennedy. i hav
peld qaddafi and put the current regime in power makes libya his iraq. just as bush was held responsible for stuff in iraq. is he going to be held responsible for stuff in libya. his arab spring initiative that permitted the muslim brotherhood to thrive now looks very suspect and it looks like a failure. and when you combine that with his refusing to see netanyahu and hillary refusing to draw a red line over which iran can't step without us retaliating, that all together really raises questions about his leadership. >> bill: okay, let's explain the netanyahu thing. the israeli prime minister is coming here next week, all right, for the u.n. he wanted to meet with president obama about the iranian nuclear situation. the president said he is he too busy campaigning, what have you. netanyahu then went public and said hey, we don't believe the u.s.a. has our back on iran. we think they are evading us. now, that combined with chaos in egypt, combined with murder in libya, that's a pretty tough, 1, 2, 3 punch. >> yeah. >> however, should mitt romney get involved, or should he step
the nation builders on the right. muslim outreach goes back to the iraq war. these protests are happening in iraq. it wouldn't have happened under saddam hussein. >> bill: dictators kept a lid on whatever they did. >> called winning hearts and minds back then. today it's muslim outreach. >> bill: navy seal who wrote that book about killing usama bin laden. he may be punished by the u.s. government. roll the tape. >> i'm not talking secrets. i'm not talking tactics, i don't even get into any of that stuff. but i really try to give the reared a sense of what it is like to be there. this book is not political whatsoever. doesn't bad mouth either party. and we specifically chose september 11th to keep it out of the politics. >> bill: the pentagon, secretary of defense leon panetta says they may go after that guy in court because when you become an intelligence operative and that's what the navy seals special forces are sign a paper saying you are not going to talk about any of the missions at all. you say, gutfeld? >> this is a great idea. punish the guy that is responsible for the one succes
the least. in iraq, that country is overly defying the usa and the world, continuing its nuclear weapons development. no question iran is america's most dangerous enemy. in egypt, the muslim brotherhood now controls the government, anti-american demonstrations are commonplace. the egyptian government failed to protect the american embassy, which was looted this week. despite that, the usa continues to send billions of dollars to egypt. in yemen, the weak government there cannot control the terror group al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, which is headquartered in that country. anti-american demonstrations are breaking out in yemen driven by the jihaddists. libya, there is chaos and the weak government there obviously cannot protect americans who are in the country. ambassador christopher stephens was a long time friends to libyans, but assassinated tuesday. you can see the evidence is overwhelming. much of the muslim world is not friendly to the the usa despite president obama's outreach. so now it is time for america to change its strategy. talking points does not believe it's smart to o
